Online visitor registration is now open as Labelexpo Europe 2017 gears up for its biggest edition to date. The four-day trade show returns to Brussels Expo during 25 – 28 September, with over 650 exhibitors lining-up to showcase the latest in cutting-edge developments for the label printing market.
Aimed at printers, brand owners, label, packaging and graphic designers, Labelexpo Europe is the largest all-inclusive trade fair for label and package printing professionals. Creating a buzz of excitement within the industry, the show will cover an unprecedented total of nine exhibition halls. Buyers attending the show will be able to sample the newest tech and next generation materials from 106 new exhibitors and Labelexpo regulars including: HP Indigo, Avery Dennison, Bobst, Codimag, Domino, Durst, EFI, Epson, Esko, Flint Group, FUJIFILM, Gallus, Konica Minolta, Mark Andy, MPS, Nilpeter, Omet, Ritrama, Screen Europe, SPGPrints, Sun Chemical, UPM Raflatac and Xeikon.
A brand new special feature, the Automation Arena, will make its debut. Showing two automated press lines for digital and conventional label production, the Automation Arena is a practical workshop where visitors will discover how information management, integrated workflow, production automation and robotics are all working towards changing the performance and economics of the label and package printing plant of the future. The Linerless Trail will return to this year’s show with a particular focus on in-house production and new materials. In addition, the Label Academy will run master classes on shrink sleeves and MIS and workflow alongside an in-depth workshop on inks and coatings.
Jade Grace, Labelexpo Europe’s project director said: “Labelexpo’s goal is to make new technologies easy to understand, easy to buy and easy to adopt. Technology, its applications and materials are developing so rapidly in terms of innovation, performance and sustainability, that it is an absolute necessity for printers to have the very best possible and most up-to-date information to help guide their business strategy. As well as being able to meet the industry’s leading manufacturers and source new supply chain partners, Labelexpo Europe visitors will be able to see, compare and ultimately decide what new services and solutions they can implement themselves to reap the benefits of working smarter, more efficiently and more profitably.”
